Ever wondered how Ozzy Osbourne managed to survive decades of a hardcore rockstar lifestyle? Well, so have scientists at the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based human genome company Knome Inc.
They did some research, and came out with a shocking discovery about the Black Sabbath legend… Ozzy is a “genetic mutant.”
Scientists Gave Ozzy a call when they decided to launch a study of “remarkable” human’s DNA back in 2010. And they found a mutation that had NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE! This mutation can explain how Ozzy kept it up (and managed to stay alive!) after years of heavy drugs and alcohol use and abuse.
How much do our genes control? Quite a lot!
There are genes for a sweet tooth, liking coffee and even political tendencies – basically, “our behavior is not of our own volition.” That’s what professor Bill Sullivan writes in his book,where he details the findings.
